Circus for Two


Finally, the birthday post. Started with the Lego Duplo collection that started it all out. It was one of Baby G's first birthday present and she loves anything circus ever since, I knew what her second birthday theme instantly. And yes those are crazy straws. Gotta love them.

I love the dessert table so much I think I have millions similar angle photos of it, knowing at the end of the day I wouldn't have the perfect shot again. I know, I'm such a perfectionist, so I hope these shots could make Amy Atlas jealous (kidding, of course).


The tiered paper plate was inspired by Martha's. Who else? Easy, cheap, and quick. An instant recommendation to glam up any dessert table. I cheated on the smallest macaroons too, those aren't macaroons. Those were super cute Japanese burger-like biscuits.


We had both real and faux popcorn made of marshmallows on top of cupcakes that day. Thanks to the awesome chocotreats, who made the cakepops and the birthday cake too.


One of my best dressed guest of the day...


The mustache photo props. Can't get enough of them.

Notice my new fabric bunting from ideku? Ain't that sweet?
And the rest of the happy day, oh, well, happy second birthday, Baby G. Looking forward for another wonderful years to come.

  24. Hi!I am doing a circus part for my daughter's first birthday this January. I am wondering how you made the backdrop for the dessert table? I can't find the common way people do them but I figured I may just staple fabric to a large piece of cheap wood or some similar material. Your help would be much appreciated!
